Happy New Year!
It’s officially 2018! This January we are focusing on high protein desserts to support your new fitness plan for 2018. Even if you aren’t planning to go crazy with fitness this year these desserts are still super delicious and protein is a great thing to add to your diet. You wouldn’t even know that these desserts have extra protein in them, they are so good. Today’s high protein dessert? Brownies! These brownies contain whey protein powder and whipped egg whites, to add even more protein.
Let’s start by whipping the egg whites! In the bowl of an electric mixer whip the egg whites until they are light and foamy.
Whip in the brown and white sugars.
Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Meanwhile, melt together the butter and dark chocolate in a saucepan.
Fold the flour, protein powder, salt, and vanilla into the whipped egg whites.
Next, fold the melted chocolate into the egg whites.
Pour the brownie batter into a 9×13-inch cake pan that has parchment paper lining the bottom of the pan. No, need to grease the pan, just line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
Bake the brownies at 325F for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 2-inches from the side comes out clean.
Cool the brownies before cutting them. You may have to loosen the brownie from the edge with an icing spatula.
These protein brownies are delicious and filled with protein! I used chocolate protein powder for my brownies, but you could use any flavor you wanted too. They are very fudgy and also they kinda melt in your mouth too. You are going to love these brownies and the protein will help those muscles!
What is your favorite brand of protein powder? I like BPI Sports.
